This advanced undergraduate textbook structures and integrates research on imagery under four headings: imagery as a personal or phenomenal experience; imagery as a mental representation; imagery as a property or attribute of materials; and imagery as a cognitive process that is under strategic control. A major part of the discussion under each of these headings concerns the ways in which the structures, mechanisms, and processes in the brain mediate our subjective experience of imagery and our observable behaviour when we make use of it in cognitive tasks.

""John Richardson has had no small part to play [in the development of European Imagery Research] and it is wholly appropriate that he should write this excellent textbook. [He] writes with a clarity that reflects his keen interest in the teaching of cognitive psychology as well as his contribution to its growth."
-Professor Robert H. Logie, King's College, University of Aberdeen, UK."
""With his new book on imagery John T.E. Richardson again demonstrates his exceptional ability to write simply about complex phenomena.Richardson discusses the main findings from an experiential, a behavioural, and a neuropsychological perspective. I know of noe current textbook managing to integrate these three approaches as well as has been achieved here.The exposition of the topics the book includes is irreproachable."
-Professor Tore Helstrup, University of Oslo, Norway."
""As we have long been accustomed with John Richardson's writings, this is a clear, well structured description and evaluation of imagery research. The book will provide an ideal way for a student to proceed in the domain of imagery.I especially appreciate the clear contrasts drawn among the four conceptual approaches to imagery. It is an excellent idea to provide the readers with summaries at the end of each chapter."
-Michel Denis, University of Paris, France."
""Extremely well written and has been well planned by the author.a book that does its job well. It guides the reader through the complexities of imagery research without losing them in the clouds of uncertainty that shroud the area."
-J.G. Quinn, University of St. Andrews, UK."
